Killian excited to receive a Florida Gators offer

On Sunday night, the Florida Gators coaching staff handed out a new offer to an underclassman in the state of Florida.

2021 athlete Kaleb Killian (5-10, 160, Jacksonville, FL. Trinity Christian Academy) picked up the offer after he spoke on the phone with one of Florida’s assistants.

“Coach [Torrian] Gray offered me,” Killian said of which coach from Florida offered him last week. “He told me that he liked what I bring to the table.”

Killian now has eight offers but receiving an offer from the Gators was a big one to him because of his family’s love for Florida.

“It means a lot to me knowing me and my family have been Gator fans our whole life,” he said on what the offer means to him. “They gave me an opportunity to compete at a higher platform which I love to compete.”

On Sunday, Gray explained to Killian what the Gators like about him but they didn’t get into which side of the ball the athlete would play in Gainesville.

“We haven’t talked that deep yet but I play both sides of the ball so they’ll have to evaluate me in person,” Killian said on where Florida likes him at. “Coach Gray said he likes my ability to make plays. I prefer offense as time goes by, I’m going a lot more comfortable playing it.”

Gray has visited Killian’s school this spring and the Jacksonville athlete likes his area recruiter’s personality.

“I know he’s a cool coach,” he said on his thoughts on Gray. “He is a coach you can bond with and I like that he asked me questions beyond football.”

Killian is still picking up offers on a daily basis so he’s ready to cut his list of schools down yet but he does know that Florida will always be a top school for him.

“I haven’t really thought about top schools yet,” Killian said on if any school is standing out to him. “Florida definitely will always be one of my top choices. I plan on visiting some time this summer but I haven’t been given a date yet.
